Angus Barrett Saddlery Classic Long saddle pads are designed to fit longer saddles such as western or cutting saddles.
Our pure wool Cleanskin Saddle Pads are the perfect option for those looking for a good value working pad, of the same quality and standard as our reputable Classic Saddle Pads.
Angus Barrett saddle pads are available in two thicknesses:
- 13mm suited to competition, breaking, training, working young horses as it provides good close contact, or
- 17mm which is better suited for longer days in the saddle, heavier riding, or simply when more padding is required.
Our saddle pads are made using one piece of felt, without any stitching down the centre. This provides unrivalled strength and prevents the risk of the pad falling apart. All Angus Barrett saddle pads have been finished with a boarder stitch to prevent the pad from separating in its layers later in life. The specially designed cut-outs, which sit along the wither and spine of the horse, provide airflow and exceptional fitting. The thicker pads have additional cut-outs for greater flexibility and faster conforming.
Angus first designed our saddle pads approximately 14 years ago. By combining the best pure wool and a design to specifically suit an Australian saddle and environment, he created a product that has proven quality and fitting with over a decade of results.
To care for the saddle pads and to reduce the need for washing them, remove horse hair from the pads by rubbing the underside with a soft, rubber curry comb.
If your pad starts to become hard or heavy with sweat, it can be washed by soaking it in a tub with fresh, cold water and then rinsing it with a hose until the water runs clear. it is important to soak the pad first before hosing it, to allow the woollen fibres to loosen and soften. Apply the hose to the pad gently and gradually.
There should be no need to use detergents, but a mild wool detergent can be used to help lift dirt and grease.
